Item 2.04 Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement


On May 5, 2023, our senior secured lender, St. Cloud Capital Partners III SBIC, LP (“St. Cloud”) delivered a Notice of Defaults and Reservation of Rights (the “Default Notice”) to the Company alleging certain new defaults under the applicable loan documents with St. Cloud. The current principal amount outstanding under the St. Cloud facility is $9.4 million. The Company remains current on all regularly scheduled interest and principal payments under the St. Cloud loan documents. The Default Notice stated that St. Cloud intends to treat such defaults as “Events of Default” if they are not cured within 30 days following the date of the notice. The company is in the process of negotiating a forbearance agreement with St. Cloud pursuant to which St. Cloud would agree to forbear from exercising its rights and remedies under the loan documents in accordance with the terms of such forbearance agreement. We also continue to work to resolve our current liquidity challenges by engaging in discussions with certain parties regarding additional sources of capital to fund our short-term and long-term capital needs. Depending upon the results of these efforts, we may explore selling assets or seek potential additional debt or equity financing to fund our obligations. The Company is optimistic that it will be able to reach agreement with St. Cloud regarding the terms of a forbearance agreement. However, if we are unable to reach agreement with St. Cloud, we would have an obligation to pay off the full amount outstanding under the facility and there is a risk that we could be required to discontinue or significantly reduce the scope of our operations, including through the sale of our assets, if no other financing options are available. The full text of the Default Notice is set forth in Exhibit 99.1 which is incorporated herein by reference.
